Fort Myers Café Shutters Give Your Home A Unique Look

Café shutters (also called half-height or half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and classic looks of Fort Myers plantation shutters on the lower part of windows, with open space up top that lets light come in.

But Why Café Shutters?

Café shutters are more than just one half of a set of shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment in their own right, designed to let in an amount of light at all times, while at the same time giving you privacy. This means they’re awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your space. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that could use more natural light such as your living room or kitchen and dining room.

Café shutters can easily pair with several other window treatments, if you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for a cozy café mood, or install white Polywood cafe shutters with some solid drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.

You might think, “Would I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, since each home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for help choosing the best fit for your windows

But if you want the best of both full plantation shutters and cafe style shutters. For that, you need divider rail plantation shutters.

 

Divider Rail Shutters Give You The Best of Both Worlds

Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a regular set of interior shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, all of the louvers move together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two halves that move separately, so you can move the top half of your louvers without moving the bottom, and vice-versa.

With a divider rail you get all the benefits of café shutters, without having one half of your window bare. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, and to keep your home more comfortable. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you the look of cafe shutters if and when you need it.
